Sue and family, So sorry to hear of Dave's passing. We played softball against each other at Uniroyal many years ago. When I was the crossing guard at St. Francis-St. Hedwig's, we would chat every morning as Dave took his usual 'walk around the block.' How l miss those days !! May God grant him eternal peace and look after Sue and her family !!!
